Anglers are fishing for walleye on the reef complex north of Camp Perry, the
Bass Islands area, the Maumee Bay area, and between N. Bass Island and
Kelleys Island south of the Ontario/Ohio border. Surface temperatures are
in the lower 50's. Over the past weekend (5/1) walleye were caught by
jigging the reefs, Maumee Bay and the Turtle Creek area; larger females were
caught trolling near the reefs, N of Kelleys Island and along the border
between Middle Island and Middle Bass Island. When fishing the reef complex
be aware that ODNR sampling will be taking place throughout the spring.
Nets are clearly marked with yellow flags and floats. Please stay clear of
